Court Declines FG Request To Extradite Abba Kyari To US

Justice Inyang Eden Ekwo of the Federal High Court Abuja has dismissed a suit instituted by the Federal Government seeking to extradite the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police DCP, Abba Kyari to the United States of America.

The judge, in a judgment on Monday, held that the extradition request filed by the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, on behalf of the Federal Government lacked merit and is liable to dismissal.

The Federal Government had fiiled the extradition charges against Kyari to enable his extradition to America to face charges related to fraud and money laundering.

Justice Ekwo, however, held that the Federal Government has no basis to file the extradition request having put Abba Kyari on trial in Nigeria in relation to the allegations against him in America.
